Ronda to Sevilla - Leisure Cycling Tour in Spain

Self-Guided Cycling Tour in Andalucia

Enjoy a moderate 5-day self-guided bike tour which takes you between two of Andalucia’s most famous and beautiful towns, including a full day to explore Seville. This tour is a feast of stunning scenery, ancient history and Spanish culture.

You begin in Ronda, set dramatically on a cliff above a deep river gorge which divides the town in two. Then head northwards to Sevilla, a city of stunning architecture, great food and the romance and drama of flamenco. Enjoy a final day exploring Sevilla on foot - the Alcazar Palace complex, Cathedral, Giralda Tower, narrow streets and atmospheric tapas bars

Your cycling route will take you through the beautiful unspoiled countryside and via small white villages which have barely changed in centuries. It follows a section of the ancient Roman Via Serrana route, dotted with castle remains and churches of Santiago.

Our Andalucian cycling tour routes always take the less-travelled path. We avoid the easy-to-find roads in favour of more scenic, lesser-known minor roads and country tracks, to give you a truly unique experience of the real Spain.

All rooms have en-suite facilities.

Spain Bike Tour Day 1 - Ronda to Olvera

41km +530m

Olvera day 1 destination of our spain cycling tourDay 1 riding profile for bike tour in spain ronda to sevilla

From Ronda, you cycle northwards, past vineyards and olive groves. Lunch in Setenil de las Bodegas, under huge overhanging limestone cliffs. Ancient "cave houses" built into the rock form the basis of many village houses, shops, and cafes. Cycle on through limestone gorge and farmland, up into Torre Alhaquime village, with great views across to Olvera's striking skyline of Arab fortress and twin-towered Renaissance church. A final section through the olives brings you to your overnight accommodation in a traditional Andalucian-style hotel.

Spain Bike Tour Day 2 - Olvera to Montellano

43km +664m

Day 2 riding the via verde de la sierra on a cycling tour in spain

Today you ride along the Via Verde de la Sierra, a disused railway line through the mountains and olive groves, with long tunnels (automatic lighting), viaducts, and a griffon vulture colony, perched high up on the rocks above the track. Lunch at one of the old station buildings before climbing up into the hills and onto the village of Montellano. Your hotel can recommend dining options in the village. 

Spain Bike Tour Day 3 - Montellano to Utrera

34km +236m

Today you join the Via Serrana, one of many Camino de Santiago that criss-cross Spain, linking isolated municipalities and offering resting places and church sanctuaries. From Montellano, this Camino crosses a flat, treeless plain that goes almost all the way to Sevilla. Stop off at the ruins of the Castillo de Aguzaderas, a 14th-century castle that was built to protect a natural water source – invaluable for crops in the long hot, dry summer months. Continue on to the town of Utrera for a visit to the grand Iglesia de Santiago and overnight in an 18th Century palace.

Spain Bike Tour Day 4 - Utrera to Sevilla

40km +204m

From Utrera, your ride is flat for most of today, apart from a short, sharp hill before Alcala and an optional hill-climb up into Alcala town, to the Castillo and church for great views of the surrounding countryside. Then head back down to the river to cross over the “dragon bridge”. Quiet riverside pathways lead you to the outskirts of Sevilla and then a fantastic network of cycleways takes you right to the cathedral at the heart of the city.

Day 6 - Sightseeing in Sevilla

Historical sights of Sevilla

Take a well-earned rest and enjoy the magnificent city of Sevilla, richly endowed with beautiful and historic sights. The Real Alcazar Moorish palace, Cathedral and Giralda Tower are must-sees. The Plaza Espana is a beautiful arc of stunning buildings around a bridged canal located within Maria Luisa Park.

ride to italica roman site on cbike tour in andaluciaIf you enjoy ancient history, take a taxi or a local bike tour to the Roman ruins at Italica, the birthplace of Roman Emperors Trajan and Hadrian. Check out well-preserved public buildings, streets, and gardens, as well as private villas, many with stunning mosaic floors. Don't miss the stunning oval amphitheater which could seat 25,000 spectators (in a city of 8,000 inhabitants) and featured as the dragon pit in dramatic scenes of Game of Thrones, Season 7. N.B. Italica is closed on Mondays.

Back in Seville centre, the Archaeological Museum contains, amongst other artefacts, a number of items removed from the Italica site. For fans of more modern sights, visit the Metropol Parasol (or giant 'Mushrooms'), located directly over more Roman remains.

Seville is also famous for its delightful tapas bars, restaurants, and shops. You could spend a week in Sevilla and still not exhaust its charms, so your time here is sure to provide a superb finish to your cycling tour.

Day 7 Depart Sevilla

Check out from your hotel and have a safe trip home or to your next destination.

We can provide transfers to your next destination or airports of Sevilla or Malaga. POA

We hope to see you again in the future.



Our cycling tour routes take you on a scenic journey away from traffic as far as possible. You will cycle mainly on quiet country roads and unsurfaced tracks. Daily distances vary according to the tour you select. We design all our routes so that you will have time after your cycling to relax and enjoy each overnight location.


Our self-guided tours are designed for leisure cyclists rather than cycling experts or people looking for large daily mileage. There are hills throughout the region that will need to be tackled but we keep daily distances manageable, particularly as you get closer to Sevilla when it can be extremely hot in the summer.

Take things at your own pace and anyone who is reasonably fit and happy to be on a bike for 3+ hours a day will enjoy this tour. 


No need for panniers or trying to pack light and risk leaving important items behind. We transfer your main luggage for you so you just take a few items for each day – water, snacks, and sunscreen. We provide an 8-liter capacity rear trunk bag.


We can offer a guided version of this tour with qualified guides and support vehicles or a semi-supported version with a support vehicle and driver who is a qualified guide.  There is a minimum person requirement of 4 to be able to provide this service.  Please do not hesitate to enquire about price and availability.



For self-guided cycling we provide a GPS application on your mobile phone.  We give free access to the application which can be used in offline mode for each day's ride. The application shows maps and the route in great detail.  We also supply quality phone holders on the bike to keep your phone safe.

We also provide a large-scale, annotated map, designed specifically for your tour by Hike and Bike, giving you a perspective of where you are at all times.
